What Is arm lift surgery?

Arm lift surgery, medically known as brachioplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the contour of the upper arm.

Brachioplasty is performed to reduce or remove excess fat and skin often left behind after weight loss, but sometimes caused by ageing and genetics.

Also known as ‘bingo wings’, the upper arms are a common problem area for many women and men who feel they suffer from stubborn fat that is hard to reduce through diet and exercise alone.

During arm lift surgery, one or more cosmetic methods can be carried out on the arms, such as liposuction and excision, to achieve the desired goals and results.

It is common for cosmetic surgeons to combine methods to help achieve the perfect arm contour that improves patient confidence and boosts self esteem.

Why Choose Brachioplasty?

Arm lifts are performed for a number of reasons on both men and women. Each patient often has their own reasons for considering surgery but they all have one thing in common – they are unhappy with the way their upper arms look.

Many people find that undergoing surgery may be a recent decision, or that it is an area of the body that they have always struggled with throughout their life.

The ultimate aim of arm surgery is to remove excess fat and sagging skin from the upper arms in order to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing contour.

Arm lift surgery can:

– Boost self confidence and self esteem
– Eliminate ‘bingo wings’
– Reduce cellulite
– Remove excess skin caused by genetics or ageing
– Create an aesthetically pleasing contour that is more in proportion with the rest of your body
– Reduce the need to cover your arms with clothes and allow you to wear other types of clothing
– Improve muscle tone in the upper arms
– Stop sagging on the undersides of your arms

About Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery is typically performed under general anaesthetic and takes around 90 minutes to 2 hours to perform.

Depending on the severity of the condition, your surgery time may vary based on the techniques and methods used by your surgeon.

It is common for cosmetic surgeons to combine an arm lift with arm reduction surgery with the use of liposuction.

Types Of Brachioplasty

– Liposuction, including Vaser Lipo
– Minimal
– Traditional
– Extended
– Non-excision

Arm Lift Aftercare / Recovery

The aftercare and recovery process following arm lift surgery varies from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure and condition.

You will receive a specific aftercare plan that you must follow to not only recover in the best and quickest way, but to also get the most out of your procedure to achieve the results you set out for.

Generally, an arm lift aftercare plan includes:

– Wearing compression garments around the upper arms for up to 2 months. Tight bandages help to support the arms after surgery and can be removed when taking a bath / shower.
– Clinical cream / gel to help with the healing of scars.
– Rest
– Avoid direct sunlight
– Take a minimum of 1 week off work depending on your job type.
– Avoid sports and exercise for 10-14 days. Then slowly introduce them back into your routine. Keep strenuous activities to a minimum until after 6 weeks.
– Avoid driving for a minimum of 5 days.

Following your plan of aftercare can reduce swelling and achieve the best result possible from your surgery.

Results

The results from arm lift surgery can be felt and seen immediately. However, the surgery site will be covered with tight bandages and should remain in place for up to 2 months.

You will continue to see the results for up to nine months post surgery as your arms settle and side effects subside

Side Effects / Complications

When you undergo arm lift surgery, your arms suffer a level of trauma that can leave you with temporary side effects, symptoms and rare complications.

These include:

– Bruising
– Swelling
– Pain / discomfort
– Scarring
– Bleeding
– Asymmetry
– Skin sensation changes

Frequently Asked Questions

  How long does an arm lift procedure take?

Depending on the type and extent of your arm lift, it can take between 1-2 hours.

  What are drains and will I need them?

Sometimes drains are used during or following arm lift surgery. They are small tubes placed under the skin to drain fluid and blood that can build up without them.

  Can I still smoke and drink?

Smoking, drinking alcohol and even taking drugs should all be avoided for a minimum of 6 weeks before surgery and 6 weeks after surgery. These can delay your healing and recovery time and increase the risk of infection.

   Are arm lift results permanent?

An arm lift is a permanent cosmetic procedure with permanent results. However, weight gain and poor lifestyle choices can stretch the upper arms and may have an impact on your results achieved through surgery.

   What areas do you cover?

The Manchester Private Hospital provides arm lift surgery to patients all across the North West and North Wales, including; Manchester, Wigan, Bolton, Blackpool, Warrington, Wirral, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno and Bangor.

  How much time will I need off work and away from the gym?

A minimum of 1 week off work depending on your job and 2 weeks away from the gym with only light exercise for the first 6 weeks post surgery.

   Will I have scars?

Arm lift surgery that involves making incision will have some visible scarring. However, this will be minimised at the underside of the arm and hidden in the natural creases.
